Word cloud featuring common words among AGHS students’ six word stories

Six word stories of hopes, goals written by AGHS students

February 12, 2021

While 2020 did bring some good, its turmoils and constant noise made it hard at times to focus on the positive. Most people are ready to move on and keep working on themselves and the attitude they will bring to the world going into 2021. We’ll spare you the recap of each and every newsworthy event of 2020, as you have lived them all for yourself, and instead present some goals, aspirations, and motivations for 2021 from AGHS students who will use what they learned from their experiences in 2020, to generate a fulfilling year to come. 

AGHS students were asked to describe, in six words, what they hope to see out of the new year or the goals they have set for themselves. After reading over 120 entries, the Eagle Times has selected the top 25 entries to share with our readers as well as some honorable mentions and standout goals.
